Fullmetal Alchemist (Hagane no Renkinjutsushi) Gekijouban DX UFO Catcher Plush Banpresto 2005

There were a few sets made for Fullmetal Alchemist, this set was a DX one made for the (first) movie, before the Brotherhood series came out I believe. The set consists of Roy and Ed, and are average DX side except for the fact that they are made to sit, not stand. So, I suppose they are technically shorter than most DX.

For some reason Ed looks larger, but I chalk it up to his hair just being more massive??

Ed looks great with his stitched eyes (always a favorite method of mine) with lots of details in his clothes. It's nice to see layers on a plushie, so I like the jacket on both him and Roy.

Ed's left arm is a different 'color' to signify the automail, but I kind of like Ichiban Kuji plush's approach more with a coated 'metal' fabric with details printed on.

Roy looks charming as ever and also has some great details! With plushies like this I always wonder what's under the eye patch, don't you? Let's take a peek!

Aha! There is something there. What is interesting, too, is that his eye patch actually has a finished hole for the ear to go through and is stitched to his head behind his ear. So, you can take his ear out, kinda neat.

I enjoy the detail on his hand and that his jacket is resting on his shoulders, but they still made the jacket have open arm holes.

Even underneath his jacket, though attached, you can see he's got the layer of his jacket, then his military coat which floats on top of his body. Very nicely done!

The paper tag is a fold-out kind and taped, but I can see the picture of the plushies on the inside.

Altogether a nice set, with the attention to detail that you see in later years of plushie production. I don't think these sell for much, just the average price of $20/ea.
